Pope Benedict XVI lived through World War II, was influential in formulating Vatican II, fought the Cold War, and helped the Church enter the digital age. And, he did all this while upholding the timeless truths of the faith and unity of worship through history in the liturgy. To understand Pope Benedict XVI and his motivations, it is important to look at the totality of his life, faith, and priesthood.  

In this heartfelt telling of Pope Benedict’s words and works, Joseph Pearce provides invaluable insight into Joseph Ratzinger the man, before he became Pope Benedict XVI.  He then details how as Pope, Benedict XVI fought tirelessly and successfully against the forces of secularism. As an uncompromising defender of the human person, he waged an unremitting battle against the dictatorship of relativism. Within the Church, he fought against modernism, restoring the splendor of truth in his defense of orthodoxy and the beauty of the liturgy.

Years from now, Catholics will still look back on Pope Benedict’s enduring legacy with profound gratitude. He successfully steered the Church in charity and truth against dark tides that sought to engulf Her.
